The Dior 2016 resort show kicked off last night at designer Pierre Cardin's Palais Bulles (Bubble Palace) just outside of Cannes. Boasting an outdoor space with a sky-grazing cliff overlooking the French Riviera, the scenery was mesmerising indeed!
The palace was used as an inspiration for Raf Simon's 2016 collection, with the its architecture coming through in the collection's designs in the form of round peplum jackets and sleeves. Simons described the palace as 'young and fresh' which reflected in his collection via gingham shorts and checked suits.
Front row guests at the Dior show included Dani and Aimee song, Laura Love, Caroline Issa and Teresa Palmer. Dakota Fanning and Zoe Kravtitz were also guests with Marion Cotillard and Cressida Bonas making an appearance as well.
The collection was an ode to Dior heritage with wasp jackets, cinched waists, folded fabrics and curvy sleeves that celebrated the woman's silhouette. Simons also wanted to incorporate the architecture of the building and design something more young and fresh; hence the collection's smock dresses, knitted rompers, sweater dresses and cotton checks.
The show itself displayed the collection as a sea of natural colours with the models wandering around the pool and gardens.
